Steerable Lift Axles

Rolf Lockwood

Watson & Chalin has introduced the Tru-Track 13K and 20K steerable lift axles for Freightliner and Western Star trucks, along with a direct-ship program that helps support the dealer network with product availability.

The Tru-Track Series incorporates the company’s quick-change ride-height system. Capacities range from 10 to 20,000 lb. The Super Short Rail (SSR) version offers a more compact mounting design when space requirements are critical.

Tru-Track 20K is said to be a robust and durable steerable lift axle but weighs only 1297 lb. The manufacturer claims it delivers an industry leading 25 degrees of wheel cut while accepting 445/65R22.5 tires. This vertically integrated suspension is currently available in truck and trailer mounts.

Warranty is five years.
